Re: Starting Pitching candidates

Quintana is better and we have him about twice as long. Also, I'll regret trading Eloy if (and only if) he actually turns into something. Eloy is gonna be a stud and it’ll be regrettable if Q is a 4/5 and doesn’t stay healthy. How do the Cubs have Quintana for “twice as long”? What if Eloy is someh...

Re: Cubs Offseason Rumors

A controllable starter who hasn’t had great succes but good stuff like Lamet and a top ~50 prospect or 2 for Baez seems about like where I’d value him. Personally. Yeah I couldn't tell if he meant on top of the controllable SP or he just meant a top prospect (or 2 top 50) could also get it done ins...

From Rosenthal's article on the Athletic, sounds like Padres asked the Cubs about Javy (doesn't sound like we initiated it).... The Padres balked at the Cubs’ asking price for infielder Javier Baez at the winter meetings, moving on to other pursuits, sources say. The Cubs likely would have wanted a...

LOL. If I am reading this right, if the Packers put Rodgers on IR without a new injury occurring GB is required to release Rodgers when healthy per the rules. It will never ever happen but if he was released, the Packers would have to resign him to a larger contract I’m sure. http://www.espn.com/nf...

Re: Smyly for the camera

5 million towards the luxury tax this year to not really play a part on the team is non-trivial, but it most likely won't matter. Nice to stack some depth, I wonder if it implies anything about what they're planning for the last rotation spot. I'm going to guess that they're going to look for a Bre...

I'm somewhat hoping for this just for the fact they'll be able to get a nice package to trade down. I still don't see us worse than 6th pick when it's all said and done.
